Homage to the Himalayas, Abrams, 2006
For most Westerners, the distance from our modern world to the remote villages of the Himalayas is too great to traverse, even in imagination. In this collection of photographs, Olivier Follmi demonstrates that the distance between cultures, no matter how great, is one of perception only. These images of pure snow, high peaks, and foreign customs are offered to us to expand our knowledge of our world and our humanity. The photographs focus on the climate and culture through the landscape, and the text describes how the Himalayas have become an integral part of Follmi’s life.
